React Training

Prior to attending the workshop, we ask to validate your machine setup so that we can ensure a smooth workshop focused on learning React, not tweaking machine setup!

Validate machine setup

  1. Please ensure you have all the requested tooling (e.g. git) as specified in setup instructions
  2. Fork the react-redux-timesheet repo
  3. git clone && cd react-redux-timesheet
  4. node verify.js

If all goes well, you should see

Adding upstream repo

If you’re feeling extra saucey, we’d also recommend setting up origin and upstream. By default, origin will be set to the copy of the cloned fork, but it is often helpful to set upstream to get updates to the upstream project. To set upstream, simply run the following command:

git remote add upstream

and then

git fetch upstream

to fetch the latest content in the upstream repository.

To validate, run git remote -v and you should see a remote and an origin like the below (perhaps using https instead of ssh)

Remote upstream

From this point, it can be helpful—but not required—to fetch the finished branch (which contains the finished labs) into your origin/finished like so:

git checkout -b finished upstream/finished

And then finally, to get back on the master branch run:

git checkout master

If needed, you can always run git checkout finished to see the structure and result of the final version and labs.
